When I started working in a retail buying office, I found it to be an exciting time in my life.

I adored being part of the decision-making that shaped what customers bought. Specifically, I enjoyed learning how to understand my customers so deeply that I could shop of them — thousands and thousands of them.

What you and I have in common is that we excel at translating visual or emotional inspiration into something a customer will pay for. We also have strong presentation skills — from visual communication to store merchandising to selling. Like you, I love this large portion of the job being a merchant!

During this early part of my career, I could have left the rest of the merchant role behind. Believe me when I tell you, I tried and here’s how it went!

Ultimately, I couldn’t. I couldn’t pick and choose what to focus on and what to ignore, and neither can you.

I quickly learned that selling inventory to a paying customer happens in an ecosystem of sorts and that this environment has an infinite amount of influences — some that we control and some do not.

Listen to this week’s podcast episode to get a bird’s eye view of the merchandise life cycle so that you can have more clarity and control of your time.

– The difference between operating a business on a solid foundation vs. shaky ground
– Unlocking more personal time off by mastering production management
– Learn the six phases of the merchandise life cycle
– Similarities and differences of how retailers and makers or small-batch manufacturers move through the merchandise life cycle

After you’ve listened, it’s time to take action! Remember: Knowledge and action are most effective when applied within the context of your unique business using your unique style.
